We have a look at the GTX 295 from ASUS and see how the card is comparing to the GTX 285 these days.

The Card

 

When it comes to pulling the card out, we don't see anything that would surprise here, as like most companies ASUS has chosen to stick with the reference design. For the most part we can see the massive shroud that covers the entire card.

As far as ASUS' special touch has gone, we can see a sticker that has a picture similar to the front of the box along with the ASUS logo to the right. To the right of the card we can see where the fan draws the cool air in.

Looking around the card, we continue to see nothing unusual. At the top of the card and towards the back we have three connectors; one 6-pin PCI-E power connector, one 8-pin PCI-E power connector and another connector that is used in conjunction with the S/PDIF loopback cable that is included in the package. We can also see here that ASUS has added another sticker to the card. In the event you have a window in your PC, people will be able to clearly see the brand.

Up towards the front of the card we have a single SLI connector. Of course, only the one is present due to the fact that you can only have a maximum of two of these cards running together, which in essence gives you a grand total of four GPUs.

 

Having a look at the front of the card, we can see a number of holes that help let the hot air escape. Also present here are two Dual-Link DVI connectors along with a single HDMI connector.

 

Specifications

 

ASUS hasn't done anything with the clocks which means we find the core comes in at the stock 576MHz and the shader and memory following with 1242MHz and 1998MHz DDR respectively.
